The Democrats must combat the “Party of No” Nihilism for the betterment of the 99%.

Updated on November 13, 2014

The Democrats must combat the “Party of No” Nihilism for the betterment of the 99%.

The “Party of No” knew it didn’t have any policies that benefitted the 99% so it cheated its way to victory.

The “Party of No” used propaganda to gain votes.

The “Party of No” used their big money cronies to win races.

The “Party of No” won’t have any policies in the future either so they will fight the Democrats’ efforts to help our country and Ted Cruz will siphon all of the energy from the Democrats with his unwarranted investigations of our President.

The “Party of No” has cheating in its personality and will continue doing it to help the fat cats.

The “Party of No” knew it didn’t have any policies that benefitted the 99% so it cheated its way to victory.

The “Party of No” knew it had nothing to stand for in this election so it planned on using voting restrictions to cheat its way to victory. There were new laws making it harder for Democrats to vote in 21 states. In all of those states “Party of No” laws were implemented disenfranchising Democratic voters against the Democrat party’s protests. In some key states the votes that the “Party of No” won by was eerily similar to the Democratic voters the “Party of No” stole the vote from—our precious right. Some of these poor souls were long-time voters who were turned away from the polls this year. How vile is the GOP? These people were denied their basic right of citizenship, their ability to hold their politicians accountable. The only role the “Party of No” in their job description of crafting legislation was to say no—thus the “Party of No” can only be held accountable by mimicking that and saying no to their election bid.


The “Party of No” is attempting to switch us into a republic, a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote, the aristocracy, which isn’t what our democracy is, which is a government by the people; especially--rule of the majority.

The “Party of No” is attempting to allow only the Top 1%, and others whose greed makes them think that they can be so also, to vote. Only the fat cats will have power in that “Party of No” government.

So many people are voting against their own interests because 99% of our population isn’t going to be served by this unannounced “Party of No” effort to switch us into a republic.

The “Party of No” used propaganda to gain votes.

If I was a red stater and had people I respected such as the entertainers on FOX News and the Clear Channel Radio hosts all accusing the Democrats of being weak on defending our country against terrorists and Ebola—in exactly the same phrasings no less, then I would have to wonder if I shouldn’t vote for the "Party of No".

I’m in in my sixties and I’ve heard GOP politicians since “Tricky Dick” appealing to the baser instincts of people, who have a basic trust in their politicians. Our citizens deserve better from GOP operatives as our citizens, for the love of all that is good and decent in the world, shouldn’t have to wonder if a GOP operative is lying.

I can remember lies from GOP politicians such as “Tricky Dick” and “Teflon Ronnie Reagan” used to brainwash its own voters. They lied that we were weak on protecting our country against the Communist threat 50 years ago.

It is the same old fear mongering from them but just switching Communists to international terrorists--sadly enough red staters buy the drivel.

The “Party of No” used their big money cronies to win races.


In 36 races – including Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa and North Carolina – outside spending eclipsed candidate cash.

More notable than the final sum, however, is the source of those funds. Spending in these elections by the vast array of outside groups — super PACs, politically affiliated nonprofits and party committees — eclipsed the sums spent by the candidates themselves in a record high of 36 congressional races.

Democrats have been adamantly against the GOP controlled US Supreme Court’s awful Citizens United decision because it made it probable that fat cats would buy elections for their cronies—the GOP.

Meredith McGehee, policy director of the Campaign Legal Center, said outside groups are setting the tone, messaging and agenda for the campaigns — sometimes more than the candidates themselves — reversing the usual order of things in the political process.

“Candidates are becoming bit players in their own campaigns,” she said. “An issue that may not be of concern to most Americans can be a hot topic because someone spent a lot of money airing millions of dollars in ads on it.”

The Democrats must combat the “Party of No” Nihilism for the betterment of the 99%.


The policies the “Party of No” favor--international trade agreements, repealing an unpopular tax on medical devices and approving the Keystone XL pipeline, hurt the 99% and don’t have Democratic support.

We saw the “Party of No” dominating the US mainstream media directly after they won the election. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John A. Boehner are quietly laying plans for a series of quick votes in January to pass long-stalled legislation and demonstrate their ability to govern. The “Party of No” want to pretend that they aren’t an unruly collection of obstructionists and far-right ideologues.

The “Party of No” will send President Obama poison pill bills with “Party of No” supported proposals that will aid only the “Party of No” and the fat cats. What fits this? This legislation will include fast-track international trade agreements, repealing an unpopular tax on medical devices and approving the Keystone XL pipeline.”

The “Party of No” knows politics, but they will do nothing in fulfilling their primary role of legislators if the policy doesn’t favor their fat cat cronies.

After they propose policies that the Democrats hate then the “Party of No” will return to their right-wing extremist tactics.

“I expect McConnell to honor his pledge to repeal Obamacare,” said L. Brent Bozell III, the chairman of ForAmerica. “I hope they were not lying to us when they promised to do it and when they promised to secure the borders. I have no patience for dilly-dallying.”

They only have their “Party of No” dominated United States Supreme Court working against the Affordable Care Act.

Our President has promised immigration advocates that he'll issue presidential orders this year to shield from deportation millions of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. Our President wanted to do this earlier, but Democrats in Congress begged him to delay this until after the election fearing that the GOP would pummel them in the election with this matter.

President Obama is compassionate and wants to help people who have come to this great melting pot of a country, but knows this isn’t what the GOP wants.

Ted Cruz’ attack of President Obama.

Ted Cruz will siphon all of the energy from the Democrats with his unwarranted investigations of our President.

Cruz went on the GOP TV propaganda organ, FOX news and said “I think we’re going to see, with a Republican majority, finally meaningful oversight of the Obama administration from the U.S. Senate. For six years, Harry Reid has been President Obama’s most important protector. He’s shut down the Senate. There’s been essentially no oversight. I hope we begin serious, systematic, sober hearings, examining executive abuse, regulatory abuse, lawlessness, abuse of power. Whether it is IRS wrongly targeting citizens or the debacle of Benghazi and four Americans who lost their lives and why more was not done to save them, or whether it’s the lawlessness that pervaded Obamacare as the president and executive branch has tried to pick and choose which laws to follow. I hope we see serious oversight on those fronts.”

The “Party of No” has cheating in its personality and will continue doing it to help the fat cats.

The “Party of No” knew it didn’t have any policies that benefitted the 99% so it cheated its way to victory in this election by using propaganda and big money to gain votes. The “Party of No” Koch brothers shills will continue their policies to cheat the 99% out of resources they deserve.

      By popular usage the word "democracy" come to mean a form of government in which the government derives its power from the people and is accountable to them for the use of that power. In this sense the United States might accurately be called a democracy.

      Not my words, but an article at http://www.thisnation.com/question/011.html

      Sorry but:

      ===============================================

      The “Party of No” is attempting to switch us into a republic, a government

      in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote

      ===============================================

      The USA is, and always has been, a republic.

      The United States is, indeed, a republic, not a democracy. Accurately defined, a democracy is a form of government in which the people decide policy matters directly--through town hall meetings or by voting on ballot initiatives and referendums. A republic, on the other hand, is a system in which the people choose representatives who, in turn, make policy decisions on their behalf. The Framers of the Constitution were altogether fearful of pure democracy. Everything they read and studied taught them that pure democracies "have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths" (Federalist No. 10 - http://www.thisnation.com/library/books/federalist...

      Writing of the merits of a republican or representative form of government, James Madison observed that one of the most important differences between a democracy and a republic is "the delegation of the government [in a republic] to a small number of citizens elected by the rest." The primary effect of such a scheme, Madison continued, was to:

      . . . refine and enlarge the public views by passing them through the medium of a chosen body of citizens whose wisdom may best discern the true interest of their country and whose patriotism and love of justice will be least likely to sacrifice it to temporary or partial considerations. Under such a regulation it may well happen that the public voice, pronounced by the representatives of the people, will be more consonant to the public good than if pronounced by the people themselves, convened for the same purpose (Federalist No. 10).

      Later, Madison elaborated on the importance of "refining and enlarging the public views" through a scheme of representation:

      There are particular moments in public affairs when the people, stimulated by some irregular passion, or some illicit advantage, or misled by the artful misrepresentations of interested men, may call for measures which they themselves will afterwards be most ready to lament and condemn. In these critical moments, how salutary will be the interference of some temperate and respectable body of citizens, in order to check the misguided career and to suspend the blow meditated by the people against themselves, until reason, justice and truth can regain their authority over the public mind(Federalist No. 63).

      In the strictest sense of the word, the system of government established by the Constitution was never intended to be a "democracy." This is evident not only in the wording of the Pledge of Allegiance but in the Constitution itself which declares that "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government" (Article IV, Section 4). Moreover, the scheme of representation and the various mechanisms for selecting representatives established by the Constitution were clearly intended to produce a republic, not a democracy.

      welp......here it is:

      "Yesterday’s elections sent several more climate deniers to a dirty energy money-rich Congress, where they’re already sharpening their knives and preparing to cut the centerpiece of President Obama’s climate agenda, the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, to shreds.

      Erich Pica, president of Friends of the Earth, summed it up succinctly: “With a tremendous amount of spending, the Koch Brothers have literally purchased the best Congress they could buy. It is now up to President Obama to pursue aggressive executive action on our pressing environmental issues, including climate change and clean water protections.”

      ******

      "The effluent from the tailing ponds is leaking into the Athabasca River, and into the Arctic Ocean. The most delicate environment on the planet is being poisoned. There are strange cancers showing up in people and animals. The Oil Industry denies it. They have been lying and polluting and sneering as long as the industry has existed. People will keep buying their products rather than find ways to avoid them.

      All pipelines can burst or leak. There is not much in the way of regular inspections. The oil industry refuses to spend money on safety. It cuts into their bottom line. While the TAR Sands are themselves spewing effluent into the air that has been trapped underground for millions of years the crud flowing down the pipeline is not really much worse than any heavy oil. The sand is washed with hot soapy water that can only be reused a few times. Then it is toxic muck that they put back into the ground or leave in the ponds. That water will never be usable by living beings."

      Just say NO, Obama!

      here's what I'm talking about!:

      "This pro-polluter agenda is not what the majority of Americans want. Poll after poll shows strong support for environmental protection. An ABC/Washington Post survey, for instance, found that 7 in 10 Americans view climate change as a serious problem and support federal action to reduce carbon pollution."

      ----and yet: we now have leaders whose FIRT act was sending Obama bill to go forward with Keystone Pipeline!.....it does not compute

      unless it means the two thirds who didn't bother to vote just gave America away

      pathetic apathy......voting matters!

      I don't buy these results....I think something underhanded went on. It just makes no sense to vote for people diametrically opposed to what you believe in.

      and if we are talking money pouring in.....pulllleeeeese

      Dem supporters def came up to the plate, but they did it honestly

      "By no means does this mean Democrats are winning on the independent spending front. Republicans are buoyed by spending from dark money nonprofits. These groups are not bound by disclosure laws, so it's impossible to know the size or number of mega-donors giving to them. Some, like the Koch brothers and Adelson, have been reported to be behind millions in undisclosed spending."

      As usual....underhanded.

      The money poured into these races, especially in North Carolina, was aimed at electing the Democrat candidate.
